"No Signal" Monitor on Brand new PC.

The PC turns on the DVI cable is connected to both the monitor and the PC. It's a flatscreen AOC monitor, brand new from PCspecialist. I can't see it being a problem inside the PC. The monitor does turn on, it shows the brand AOC and then just "no signal" going to black, the monitor on button lights up still.

Are you connected to onboard graphics or the graphics card?

can you give some more details such as model Name No.?

AOC E2270Sw Monitor. The PC is custom so... Right now it's connected to the motherboard's graphics but the same happens if it's connected with graphics card, "no signal".

Does the monitor support different inputs. If so check that it is toggled to the right one.

Does the PC have a HDMI connection. Have you tried disconnecting Monitor and connecting the computer to TV via HDMI before booting. If it works the fault could be with the Monitor.

No HDMI cable. It is the right DVI cable. The monitor only has an On button.

I would find that strange if it does not have more than an on/off button. I suggest you check that with the instruction sheet or look it up on the web. What is the make/model number.

That monitor only appears to have a D sub input for a VGA cable? A lot of the so called DVI to vga cables just don't work as you are trying to change a digital to analogue signal

I took out my ram and reseeded it back into my motherboard. It's done, thanks, for nothing.

It's the cheapest monitor in the world, I spent all my money on the actual PC.
